The 22-year-old has recorded four tackles in three games for Gang Green this season.

Salas was signed off the Eagles’ practice squad Tuesday despite the Jets knowing he was dealing with an injury that Rex Ryan said could sideline him “a couple of weeks.”READ MORE: Group Marches Across Manhattan Bridge To Protest Shooting Death Of Daunte Wright In Minnesota
